Received in CanBIF 6 from IronDjinn, thanks man! Nice treat!
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with lots of light sticky, bubbly head which efficiently settles to a tiny layer, leaving a good amount of lace.
Huge hop nose. Lots of citrus (grapefruit, lemon), some pine, weed, something lightly woody.
Taste has tons of hops from start to finish. Fruity at first, some mango backing up the citrus, then a touch of caramel maltiness, finishing with straight up hoppy bitterness, almost to the point of being astringent. Hops still taste fresh and powerful. Overall, a little unbalanced towards the hop side, but I guess that's kinda the point.
Mouthfeel is great, carbonation is on the lower end, which I prefer for most English and American ales. Also results in improves drinkability.
This is a hoppy treat, the likes of which is not easy to find in Canada, especially Ontario, so I'm very grateful for receiving this one.

Purchased this while doing my weekend a month at the base I was on. They had a decent selection of beer, and I wound up going with this. I was very pleased with my selection. It poured a nice amber color with a very thick foamy rich white head. What got me though was the smell. This smell is what every IPA should strive for. Floral, fruity sweet and good. I could sit there smelling it all night. The smell didn't translate completely into the taste, but it was still very good. I'd say the lower level of the top tier of IPAs. Felt very smooth in my mouth, very refreshing. I think this IPA is very underrated. I am glad I found it and would not hesitate to drink it again.
